Help with Click event for a menu item

How do I handle the click event of a menu item?   I've tried a number of things, like:

Doing this in code behind:   MultiLevelMenu.Attributes.Add("onmenuitemclick", "MenuItemClick") ,  or effectively doing the same thing via the markup.  I never get the  click event.

Any help would be appreciated.
